Making the Most of Moorlands: Update

Merlin Vs. Harrier - The battle continues.....

18th April 2016

Another worthwhile stop at Harrier Corner after the John Muir session this morning. There was some skydancing and the Merlin Vs Harrier war was still raging on with a male Harrier making the mistake of picking on the female Merlin today. The macho male Merlin was having none of that sort of behaviour and rushed to his lady's aid and a spectacular chase ensued with both species showcasing their phenomenal flying skills. Before too long the male harrier drifted off over Middlemoss and the pint sized hero returned to his rock to bask in his glory.

The male Merlin defends his lady's honour against a male Harrier.

The male Merlin makes another pass.

The next guided watch will be on Saturday 30th April at Harrier Corner, 8am - 12 noon. See you there!

  1. Lovely to see Harrier Corner is living up to it's name Cat. With the Merlins making sure they get into the act as well: a really good series of photos.

    All the best,
